Many cancer centers offer high-quality care. What sets Dana-Farber apart is both the level of highly specific expertise of our doctors and nurses, and the quality of care you get from your entire cancer team.
Because we are a large center with deep specialization, our clinicians see your type of cancer frequently; in many instances, hundreds or even thousands of times. This experience provides you with an unparalleled level of expertise, even if you have a rare type of cancer. Our patients come to Dana-Farber from around the world for diagnosis and care, clinical trials, second opinions, and for a personalized plan to treat their cancer.
Read what our patients and families say about us.
We ask patients to rate their care in a number of important areas. The surveys are compiled by Press-Ganey, an independent company experienced in patient satisfaction surveying.

"I am alive today because of four things: my stem cell donor, my amazing Dana-Farber doctor/researcher Joseph Antin, the amazing nurses who continue to care for me, and my fabulous family. I had a successful transplant in 2007 for Aplastic Anemia caused by a rare disorder. From the second I met him, I knew Dr. Antin was the best in the transplant game. He and the entire staff at Dana-Farber worked seamlessly together to deliver first-rate care to me every single day. It was a rough road but I survived because I came to Dana-Farber. My daughters have a mother because I came to Dana-Farber. My husband can grow old with me because I came to Dana-Farber. I owe my entire life as I know it to my decision to come to Dana-Farber.
"The unique quality of Dana-Farber is its ability to excel at both the art and science of research and patient care. To hold fast to its traditions while constantly innovating. To treat every patient as a unique individual with a unique story. To not only care FOR me, but ABOUT me. I was unlucky in needing a transplant, but I was incredibly lucky in finding Dana-Farber."
